We cannot be more excited to be a part of the beginning of the efforts to end the threat of Covid-19 by participating in vaccination clinics. While we are all ready to relax, we know that now it is more important than ever to continue using all of our tools to keep Covid-19 at bay, so that our community and our local areas can greatly reduce the threat of this virus.
Tools for fighting this virus include: wearing a mask, physical distancing, washing our hands, avoiding crowds, avoiding poorly ventilated areas, and getting the vaccine when given the opportunity.
Our first vaccine clinic this past Friday, January 22nd, was well received by residents and staff. We are thankful to those who participated! The vaccine is a two dose series with a potential efficacy of 95% two weeks after the final dose. Our second clinic is scheduled for February 12th. Residents and staff who received their first dose this past week will be able to get their second dose at that clinic. Residents or staff who missed this first clinic will be able to receive their first dose at the February 12th clinic date.
We continue to be Covid-19 free at our community.
